A breathtaking venue with expansive coastal views…

Nestled on a picturesque 500 acre property , Kauri Bay Boomrock offers a unique blend of country and coast with expansive views over the Hauraki Gulf. A stunning backdrop for weddings offering the perfect blend of ocean and nature. Only a short drive from central Auckland, this modern farm by the ocean, has innumerable striking locations for unforgettable photos and beautiful moments.

What was the initial spark for the property and how did it all begin?

We actually started in Wellington about 27 years ago, Ollie and his Uncle, Jonny decided to do something in Auckland as there was nothing quite like it. After a few more Heinekens, Jonny said you know what why don’t you start it. So Ollie being the silly man he is decided to do so. 

What spaces do you offer for a wedding or event?

We have three venues on sight to choose from, surrounded by some of the country’s most beautiful scenery.

The Lodge has the ability to host from 10-250 guests in a warm and relaxes atmosphere with expansive coastal views over the Hauraki Gulf. It is the complete venue to entertain guests for corporate entertainment and meetings to wedding celebrations, international incentives, private functions and product launches.

The Bunkers is a little smaller and can host up to 50, this is what we call our “Off the grid” venue. This venue is developed around the five-stand sporting concept. Set amongst high hill terrain, the diverse targets will encourage the beginner through to challenging the shooting enthusiast. The Bunkers offers the ultimate day out for both private and corporate entertainment experiences.
